Breakwater Ceylon Colombo Lanka


EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the bustling harbor of Colombo, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), circa 1890. The image showcases a breathtaking panorama of ships of various sizes and shapes anchored along the protective breakwater. The natural beauty of the scene is contrasted by the industrial might of the vessels, which were essential to the economic development of the region during that era. The breakwater, a man-made structure built to protect the harbor from the rough waves of the Indian Ocean, stretches out into the distance, connecting the land to the sea. The ships, with their sails fully hoisted or anchors down, are a testament to the maritime trade that thrived in Colombo during the late 19th century. The photograph also reveals the vibrant activity along the shoreline. People can be seen going about their daily routines, from fishing and boat building to loading and unloading cargo. The presence of European colonial buildings in the background, such as the imposing Galle Face Hotel, underscores the significant influence of Western powers on the region's economy and culture. This photograph offers a fascinating glimpse into the rich maritime history of Colombo and Sri Lanka, a time when the country was a vital link in the global trade network. The image invites us to reflect on the past and appreciate the enduring role that the sea and shipping have played in shaping the lives of people in this region and beyond.
